    1. In the group with daily supplementation of 400 mg of magnesium, HRV parameters clearly increased

      This is as I'd expect. I'd like to know if there's a dose relationship. I'll also need to see if this translates to clinical significant improvements in things like schizophrenia and CFS.

    1. Magnesium reduces the intensity of addiction to opiates and psychostimulants (cocaine, amphetamine, nicotine, and others). It also decreases the auto-administration of cocaine and the relapse into cocaine and amphetamine intake, as well as reducing the experimental addiction to morphine, cocaine and other substances in animals. In heroin addicts, alcohol consumers and other drug abusers, the plasma and intracellular magnesium concentration is lower compared to healthy subjects.

      Precisely what I'd expect. However, I was hoping to find a placebo controlled trial. I'm nearly certain that magnesium will show benefit. I'm less confident that such studies will use adequate doses of magnesium for the effects to reach statistical significance.
